On a trip to Hockley, Texas, the Kansas State women’s golf team shot 84-over par through 54 holes and tallied a score of 936, landing in ninth place in the Big 12 Championship.

On the last day of golf, as a team, the Wildcats shot 32-over par for a score of 316.

“Obviously very disappointed with the scores this week,” head coach Kristi Knight told Kansas State Athletics. “The ladies wanted to have better results for sure. It’s hard when you are struggling to not press and to let it happen and let it come to you.”

Leading on the scoreboard for the Wildcats was junior Haley Vargas, who finished in 26th place, scoring 13-over par.

“I’m proud of Haley,” Knight told K-State Athletics. “She played a lot of good golf for three days.”

After Vargas, four Wildcats scored in a cluster behind her. In 40th place was senior Heather Fortushniak, shooting 24-over par. Finishing one stroke behind was sophomore Napua Glossner, shooting 25-over par. In 42nd place was junior Manon Donche-Gay, who shot 26-over par. Lastly, freshman Remington Isaac shot-29 over par to place in 43rd.

“It’s tough, but we will be back and be stronger,” Knight said.

The tournament ends the 2021-22 campaign for the women’s golf team.
